On Tuesday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called on House Republicans to vote for either Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) or Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) to replace House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).
In a Facebook note, Palin, who on Monday evening called for Boehner’s ouster on Fox News, touted both as “commonsense conservatives who’ve proven to American they keep their promises to We the People”:
As you compete to make it to the Capitol this morning through that DC snow, remember that competition is good in ALL things; it makes everyone work harder and producer better, and it keeps us fresh, active and on our toes! It’s time for new energy and positive progress in Congress. Please consider “Gunnin’ for Gohmert” or going “Yahoo for Yoho” when you vote for Speaker of the House today. Both Representatives are true Constitutional, commonsense conservatives who’ve proven to America they keep their promises to We the People. They know they serve America, not the power brokers in DC. With all due respect we can thank yesterday’s Congressional leadership for years of service and be confident that former title holders will do the right thing and unite with NEW leadership today!
In order to get to a second ballot, at least 29 Republicans must vote against Boehner on Tuesday and for an alternative. Yoho indicated to Breitbart News that momentum has been building in recent days to topple Boehner and voting would get to a second round.
